Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Dynamics GP

My organization utilizes Microsoft Dynamics GP for all our accounting needs. We process timesheets against projects to record consultant's time, convert this into payments to the consultants and invoices to customers. We collect cash from our customers and reconcile the bank statements. Financial statements are easy to produce and all payables transactions are handled through GP as well. It is our only solution and it fits our needs perfectly.
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP is completely integrated. There is no need for additional products to handle payables, receivables, project accounting, field service, payroll, etc.
  • The drill back capabilities within Microsoft Dynamics GP are phenomenal! There is no need to write down a journal entry number and then go find it, you let the system doing the drilling back for you to go from a journal entry all the way back to the initial transaction in the subledger.
  • The reporting options from Microsoft Dynamics GP are endless. You can utilize any of the hundreds of reports built into the application or easily utilize SmartList to perform ad hoc queries of your data. If more robust reporting is needed, then SQL Reporting Services is available.
  • Having an integration between Project Accounting and Field Service would be amazing! There are so many companies that have service technicians that perform work on a customer's contract but also have a need for project accounting functionality within that customer's contract. Right now those modules are separate so you either need to use one or duplicate some efforts if you need to use both.
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP could do a better job documenting their new enhancements to the product. They realize great enhancements but the documentation about them, or new products, is lacking so it is difficult as a consultant to know everything a new feature can do for me and my customers.
  • They could enhance their forecasting capabilities with a new forecasting tool within Management Reporter.
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP allows my clients to move from a paper or spreadsheet based company to an integrated, electronic, streamlined business. I love being able to help clients gain efficiencies through the use of Microsoft Dynamics GP.
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP allows for better customer service because everything is at our fingertips. If someone calls questioning an invoice, we can easily look it up. If someone calls stating they paid an invoice with a certain check number, we can quickly run a query to find that particular check number to see where it was applied.
  • Having everything on a single platform provides ease of use for upgrades, backups and end user training. There is only one software to learn!
I am thoroughly passionate about utilizing, implementing and supporting Microsoft Dynamics GP.
I need to fully understand the client's needs in an ERP solution but I have not run into a situation where Microsoft Dynamics GP could not work for the client. It really comes down to what is most important to the client and if that area of Microsoft Dynamics GP is extremely feature packed and a strong suit, then it's a great fit.
